Thomas Jefferson

What would Thomas Jefferson have thought about the Stimulus Bill being voted on today in the Senate?

"To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. If we run into such debts, we (will then) be taxed in our meat and our drink, in our necessities and in our comforts, in our labor and in our amusements. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they (will) be happy."

You bring up an excellent point. The founding fathers would roll in their graves if they could see the state of the country today.
